Welcome to Advanced Materials Manufacturing and Tribology Research Laboratory

Research at the Advanced Materials Manufacturing and Tribology Lab addresses the science and engineering of advanced metallic materials with particular focus on advanced materials including composites, microcellular metals and high-performance alloys. 


Our activities and interests are in various aspects of materials processing, properties and characterization. Our research programs aim at constructing a quantitative and predictive understanding of the phenomena underlying the materials development for industrial applications by employing a variety of experimental and computational tools to establish process-structure-property relationships in materials. 

We also conduct collaborative research on alloys and intermetallics, with focus on physical properties, mechanical behaviour, physical metallurgy, micromechanics and microstructural optimization.
